We’re already two months into school now. Halfway done. Somehow. I have no clue where the last few weeks have gone! To be honest, it hasn’t been that bad. The first week of school swamped all the freshman with papers and readings due immediately, but now everything is falling into a nice, busy schedule.
My classes don’t start until 10 am which is amazing. I have time to get up at 8 and slowly do my morning routine before taking my time to get to class (unless there’s an assignment due; that’s a whole other story).
Other than these classes, working a few hours a week, and the couple club meetings I’ve been to, I spend most of my time studying or netflix-ing in the dorm room. Which is why I’ve been trying to make it as home-y and comfy as possible!
The desk – I honestly do most of my school on my bed so I use my desk to hold all my textbooks, notes, handouts, supplies, makeup, and other items so I can reach them easily. Underneath the desk is my pantry. AKA a wicker basket filled with somewhat healthy food (besides the chocolate chips and cereal in the front…).
I purchased new blankets, sheets, and pillows at the beginning of school and brought the green blanket to have something from home.
These paintings from target (i think) really really help since the white walls are a little cold.
I got the fabric backdrop in a FabFitFun box, and it’s actually a huge scarf. But it’s Texas and so far – besides the hurricane weather – it hasn’t been below 60 so it’s now my dorm decor! Once it get’s chillier I may have to snag it for walking to class and actually buy myself a new tapestry.
We attempted to liven up the space with a few plants which I have managed not to kill yet. We’ll check back at the end of the semester and see how well they’re doing then…. also there’s only one picture so far on our decoration wall! But we do have some pumpkin decor since it’s October.
(A moment to appreciate all the awesome books my roommate brought to college!!)
And we bought a rug to really warm up the place. Side note: make friends with football players who will offer to lift practically ALL your furniture up to put the rug in place while you stand and watch (and take pictures of the new rug to show your mom).
My room has not been this clean since I moved in (and even then, it was a lot bare-er so yay for lazy Saturdays and cleaning!).
Because the campus is gorgeous I want to show you around the grounds. I only have a few pictures?? Definitely will have to fix that, but here are the couple I have:
